When we have a worldview that this life is all there is, we tend to put all our effort into making sure that we are as comfortable as possible. That makes sense. But what doesn’t make sense is believing that our lives are just random, and that we simply exist for no real purpose at all. There is no way that anyone can truly believe that the universe came into existence through some or other random event.
If we don’t doubt that everything we see in our homes, in our streets and in our cities have been made by someone, then why is it so implausible that our perfect universe, was created by a perfect God? There is no doubt in my mind that God is the creator of all things. There is no doubt that He is eternal and that there is an eternity waiting for us.
Because of that, this life is but a wink of the eye compared to what is waiting for us. Why then, would we choose short Earthly comfort, to replace an eternity in the presence of God? He has put us here on Earth, to make a difference. We were born for a time such as this, when the world is in desperate need of direction.
But if we choose to allow our comfort, to stop us from reaching out to a world in need, we are the ones who are losing out. There is nothing as soul-warming as letting go of things that are holding us back, and stepping into a future of purpose. There is nothing more rewarding than opening the cage of comfort that ensnares us, and flying to the calling that God has for us.
Don’t allow yourself to get stuck in that cage! Don’t sacrifice a life of purpose for a life of comfort! Just don’t do it!
